The Advanced Medical Technology Association ("AdvaMed") is dedicated to the advancement of medical science, the improvement of patient care, and in particular to the contribution that high quality, cost-effective health care technology can make toward achieving those goals. In pursuing this mission, AdvaMed members recognize that adherence to ethical standards and compliance with applicable laws are critical to the medical device industry's ability to continue its collaboration with health care professionals.
Members encourage ethical business practices and socially responsible industry conduct related to their interactions with health care professionals. Members also respect the obligation of health care professionals to make independent decisions regarding Member products.
Consequently, AdvaMed adopted this voluntary Code of Ethics, effective January 1, 2004 and revised and restated with an effective date of July 1, 2009, to facilitate Members' ethical interactions with those individuals or entities that purchase, lease, recommend, use, arrange for the purchase or lease of, or prescribe Members' medical technology products in the United States.
